Childcare and Education

Childcare is often demanding, but it is very rewarding. It requires a range of personal qualities such as an enthusiasm for working with children, an interest in their development and welfare, creativity and imagination.Early years and young people courses at Doncaster College available from Entry Level all the way to postgraduate study, on and off-site.

Incredible on-site facilities and off-site links make our childcare and early years courses perfect for you to prepare or progress in your career within the sector.

Our childcare and early years courses offer access to many facilities including our onsite nursery suite, where Entry Level to Level 3 students will gain practical skill building with electronic babies. We even offer additional skills building alongside your main course, such as paediatric first aid and safeguarding training. Many of our students even have the opportunity to take part in overseas placements.

Our work placement officer assists all learners with applying for and securing external work placements which is a mandatory element on the childcare courses. You will be taught by our industry expert staff who are experienced in a wide range of backgrounds.
